This I Believe

I believe death brings people closer. When I was in high school I always had plenty of friends to socialize with. However, out of these friends there were only some I considered to be a “true” friend. One of those friends was a boy named Tommy. He was your typical jock, he played football, baseball, basketball and even was considering joining a UFC club. He was one of the nicest people I knew and he always knew how to make someone smile. It didn’t matter if it was a simple joke, or him doing something crazy that no one else would dare to do. That’s the kind of person Tommy was, he was someone you could always go to for help and could talk to about anything. His friendly smile made it ...view middle of the document...

I was a lot like Tommy when I was in high school, I never paid close attention to cliques, I talked to who I wanted when I wanted. Today it makes sense why we were good friends. Tommy even introduced me to my first love. It is pretty easy to say that there wasn’t anyone who disliked Tommy.
The summer had just begun and all of us were excited for class to be over with. One day Tommy was on his way from basketball camp to football practice with his friend Chris in the passenger seat. Tommy did not have his seatbelt on since he was in such a rush to get from one place to the other. He went around a quick turn and hit gravel, it was then that Tommy lost control of his car and flipped into a tree. Being that Tommy did not have his seatbelt he went straight through the windshield and then came back into the car. Chris, however, did have his seatbelt on and was not seriously hurt in the accident. Tommy on the other hand was not, the impact of the car was too much for his body and was killed instantly. The accident affected every person in that school. After the accident everyone joined hands and prayed. It was then that it did not matter if you were popular or not, if you were a jock or a geek, all that mattered was that the world lost a great person and friend.
Every once in awhile I think back to that day and how horrible it was. I also remember though how uplifting it was to see so many people there for each other. I could not even count how many times I heard “If you need anything just call me.” Tommy’s death was one of the hardest things I have had to go through in my life, but at the same time it made me realize how many good people there are in this world, and how fast they can leave. Death may be a sad thing to cope with but in the end, it brings everyone closer. This I believe.
